Fred “Dave” was born to Dr. Fred Davis Jr. and Dorothy Nell (Griffin) Spencer on Nov. 22, 1955, in Brownwood.

Blessed with conservative roots and a strong, thoughtful and positive worldview, Fred lived as a successful small-business entrepreneur, accomplished photographer and gentle father.

Eagle Scout from Brownwood Troop 14 and brother alumnus of Lambda Chi Alpha at UT Austin, “Dave” passionately understood the essential impact of honesty, loyalty and integrity in our daily lives. Through passionate leadership and constant rigor, he practiced the nurturing value of eternal friendship and selfless community building.

Fred is survived by his children, Nancy Leigh and Fred IV; his sisters, Pamela and Penny; his beloved companion, “Action” Jackson; and a rich legacy of dear friends.

“Dave” was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. Fred Davis Spencer Jr. and Dorothy Nell Spencer; and his lifelong childhood friend, Stanley Walker Jr.
